Profile:

Matt’s motorcycle career started at the age of 12 when he, after endlessly begging his partens, received his first motorbike. Eversince there hasn’t been a period in his life where he didn’t owned a bike. As he says himself ‘it’s a disease that owns me!’

Matt has raced on and off in motocross, Arena cross, cross country and natural terrain. From 2009 onwards he got interested in the Rally scene after following some mates who were competing in the Australian Safari.

In 2013 he purchased a rally bike and in 2014 he competed in his first 2 rallies, the Yilgarn rally and the Australian Safari. Matt had some ups-and-downs and learned quickly what ‘rally racing’ was all about. Unfortunatelly he couldn’t finish the Australian Safari due to mechanical problems, so he had some ‘unfinished business’. In 2015 he started in the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, a World Championship rally. His main target was to finish, and he did. He even ended up in top 10!

Matt’s ultimate goal is to finish the Dakar Rally as a Malle Moto competitor, but on advice from previous competitors he will be riding with a team for his first attempt, to give himself the best chance of finishing.

Matt is not only a rally enthousiastic, he also cares about other people and supports Charity SOLDIER ON, who supports wounded veterans and their families. During the 2017 Dakar he will be supporting SOLDIER ON, to get exposure and awareness for this charity, at the worlds greatest motorsports race!

Other interests (besides racing motorbikes): camping, gym and spearfishing
